Expirences with these?

Anyone have any input on these? Good, bad, know a better one/price, sucks to install, etc?

Mustang Vintage Wide Touring Solo Seat for Honda 2010-13 Fury - One Size https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0051NQJ10..._eAv-yb734WJDN

National Cycle Street Shield EX For 1 Inch Handlebars - Smoke - N2568-01 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B005KQUSOC..._jHv-ybNCGGPT0

Also in the market for inexpensive (if there is such a thing) saddle bags and support brackets if anyone has any suggestions.

Thanks in advance!

okay, T....

I'll jump in here to kick off the seat debate.... Mustang seats are really good for the most part on the butt, BUT they tend to be a little wide on the nice sleek Fury frame.... I personally don't like the look. I modded my stock seat by inserting a gel pad and memory foam.. i used a tutorial. it was actually my very first mod to my bike. Had fun making a mess with dremelling out the foam for where i was inserting the gel pad! I'll look for my blog post on it......

Some also trim the tip of the stock seat to show more tank, during this mod.... then there's the C&C debate someone else can kick off.... the danny gray short hop has been a popular one, but hard to find these days. it's a two-up which i sense you'll need for the the new strings of ladies pouring in this summer........... You best do your passenger seat up well, unless you're going to attract the same type you just booted, then give em the stock pillion and you'll be afforded your quiet time, coz she "cant sit on that!" blah blah blah....

Windshields/vests- you'll be amazed at how the little ones do to toss wind the wond over ya, depending on yer size....... but again another love em hate em debate for the Fury sleek minimalistic design. Best not be posting up questions on "saddlebags"...


Basically, some thigns you have listed here have been debated by a lot of peeps as to "are you trying to convert the sleek clutter free Chopper that the Fury was designed, into a Touring Bike"...........which might be better off with a stateline or interstate.

BUT it's all individual tastes.. that's the most awesome thing about using this forum - to get so many awesome ideas, consider what you like, and may not like, and make her your very own unique ride - to exactly your tastes.... that's the bottom line!!!!!



Cheers M8....

Sweet! I'll look into it. Lot of options to consider, and I'm sitting on fence as far as appearances go. I LOVE the sleek look, running around town- or just cruising. But I need the functionality to do almost 300 miles round trip each twice a month. Hmmm...

I use one of these for my commute to and from work (50 miles each way). Enough room for shoes, lunch, and stuff. Nothing dangling in the wind. Ogio Mach 3 pack. Waist belt is a bit short for a fat dog like me... but found an extension on Amazon for $4 bucks.

Way more comfortable than the stock seat.

I can't say that I am unhappy with my stock seat. I find it comfortable on my commute, but believe you that the C&C would be even more comfortable. Particularly on the longer rides this summer. And I like the way the stock seat looks... but when I look at pics of the C&C seats... no comparison... really nice! Dam it... $$$$$$$$$
